WordPress is one of the most favoured Content Management Systems or CMS platforms today. The platform, based on PHP, has been around for several years. And since then it has been the first choice when it comes to website development. You would be surprised to know that the platform powers more than 43 percent of the active websites in 2021, which again states that it is the most popular choice of CMS platform now. However, the challenging part is choosing the ideal WordPress developer for your project. Whether you want to redesign or rebuild your current website or want to develop a new website for your business, choosing to hire a WordPress developer with the right skills and knowledge is important. 


Here are the most vital things you need to consider to choose the right WordPress developer for your web development project. 


WordPress comes with several amazing features and functionalities and the programmer must be well-versed with the same. The programmer should be able to make the best use of the latest version of the CMS for effective website development with WordPress. Consider these few crucial things shared here to make the right choice of developer for your website development. 


Check the developer’s portfolio:

A reliable and proficient WordPress developer should have an impressive portfolio having all the previous works. A portfolio gives a clear picture of the quality and standard of work the developer has delivered before. If you check the portfolio, you may also get to know and see whether the professional has handled your kind of projects before or not. Consider this aspect to ensure you are choosing an experienced WordPress developer


Look for different WordPress related technical skills:

The developer must be a pro in using WordPress and all its features. The CMS comes with innumerable in-built themes, plugins, and extensions and the professional should be an expert in using all as per your project requirements. The professional should be familiar with the WP plugin ecosystem, custom theme development, plugin installation, core upgrades, security tools, and the WordPress SEO tools. 


Apart from this, he or she must have in-depth knowledge of editing and uploading images, using Photoshop, Fireworks, website hosting services, UI/UX design knowledge, understanding of JavaScript, HTML, PHP, and CSS. 


Look for references:

A professional and experienced WordPress developer will surely provide real-time client testimonials and references. There are so many sources like Google, Facebook, and more, that can provide you reviews and testimonials of the previous clients of the developer. Go through these references and reviews before choosing the developer. 


Excellent communication skills:

The developer should ensure excellent and easy communication skills. The client must be able to contact the professional whenever required and using quick contact modes like Phone, email, or chat. The developer must also provide regular work updates to the client. 


A record of delivering projects on time:

Maintaining a time-management strategy is a quality of a good WordPress developer. The professional should possess this trait. He or she should first analyse your requirements, make a project planning, and then design, develop, test, and deploy keeping the deadline in mind. 


Apart from these, discussing the development charges is also important as it is important to stay within the budget without compromising on the quality factor. The competition is high on the web and you have to get a high-quality WordPress website built to stay above your competitors. And this is why it is crucial to find an expert in WordPress development
